Professional Statement

***Insurance Disclaimer*** I work as an out-of-network provider. I'll be glad to assist you in understanding this process and can offer you information that will be helpful for reimbursement. I am a psychiatrist and trained psychoanalyst who has practiced in New York City for over 25 years. I am also a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center and a Psychoanalyst associated with Columbia University Psychoanalytic Institute. I see people of all ages and have a broad practice. I treat people with anxiety, depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but I also work with patients who have conflict in their everyday lives with personal relationships and work-related stress. In addition, I treat people with obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, and sexual disorders. My approach is highly individualized and I take into account the specific circumstances of each patient and work with him or her in formulating a treatment plan. My treatment approaches include talking therapy (psychotherapy), but I also prescribe medications (psychopharmacology) and practice psychoanalysis. My approach is holistic. I believe that the mind and body are part of a full person and that both need to be taken into consideration in treatment. I have worked globally with individuals from diverse cultures, which has made me sensitive to patients of different cultural backgrounds. I have been perennially recognized by top rating organizations like New York Magazine, Castle Connolly’s Guide to America’s Top Doctors and Top Doctors for the Psychiatric Treatment of Cancer Patients, and US News and World Report and have been honored as a Distinguished Life Fellow by the American Psychiatric Association, the major organization in the field. I am invited to lecture and speak to a wide range of professional, academic and lay audiences and my research and writings are published in major peer-reviewed journals. I have also made frequent appearances as an expert on public radio and television. My services include consultations, psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, psychoanalysis, couples therapy and family therapy.
